SOCCER skills expert John Farnworth showed off his fancy flicks and tasty tricks in and around Welwyn Hatfield on Tuesday.

The newly crowned World Freestyle Champion was in the area to launch the Brazilian Soccer School, which has opened at Hatfield Finesse Leisure Centre in Travellers Lane.

John visited St Philip Howard School and Oak View Primary in Hatfield, as well as WGC's Templewood School, among others in the county.

From balancing the ball on the top of his head, to keeping it in the air with his feet and knees while sitting down the footie fanatic pulled out tricks to impress.
